As a fashion-fanatic you are sure to enjoy going shopping with your friends and buying the latest trends you’ve seen modeled in magazines like Vogue. You have probably already seen our Look of the Day article which we hope has helped give you some fashion inspiration today.
Many parties these days are themed around particular decades which means it is a great excuse to buy a fun outfit. The twenties were known for flapper dresses, while the eighties was known for floral leggins. If you’re in need of some classic and retro hair styling inspiration, you may be able to find it on the Toni and Guy or Rush London website. It’s also worth looking at photos of people from that decade because it will give you plenty of fashion and hair ideas. We’ve put together a brief fashion guide called Dressing for the Decades which we hope helps you out.
The 1920s look: Finding a flapper dress is not only difficult but they can be rather expensive which is why we have come up with a modern alternative. Why not wear a loose, button-up silk shirt and over the top wear a floppy bow tie? This acts as an accessory so there’s no need to wear a necklace. Wear this outfit with a fitted short pencil skirt, some patterned tights and black lace-up shoes.
The 1960s look: This is probably one of the most glamorous decades; women wore beautiful and form-fitting cocktail dresses in the evenings, while men looked dapper in their suits. Try styling your hair up in a bun and wear plenty of chunky jewellery, a pair of silk gloves and high heels. Women in the 60s were pristine so remember to match the color of your lipstick to the color of your nail varnish.
The 1980s look: This era was all about the mullets, the leggins and the crazy colorful accessories. Why not wear a pair of black leggins with heeled knee-high boots? Then wear a shirt with shoulder pads or even a denim waist jacket.
By the looks of this video, Kenneth Cole’s new fall line is going to be good. Not to mention, it has hottie, male model, Cole Mohr! This video is fun, and really calls to all these urban kids that want to cause just a little bit of mischief. So, watch it, buy the clothes, and if the urge overcomes you… go ride around in your shopping cart!
The Boston Bazaar baby Isabella Louis will be showing their fall 2011 collection tomorrow at Emmanuel College’s EMPULSE Fashion Show. FYI they were asked to create a black collection to represent their scene entitled “Valley of Shadows.” Expect pure awesomeness.
LA based design house Skingraft led by designer Johnny Cota started in 2005 as an experiment in performance art-inspired fashion and they now produce ready to wear pieces for men and women. The Fall 2011 collection peeked our fancy.
While I may not be a die hard fan of the collection, I love the hair and makeup. Manish Arora presented his Fall 2011 collection in Paris with a show just as theatrical as the hair and makeup. The show opened with a magician that conjured the first model, Charlotte Free, out of fire. Further in the show he did it again then finished by splitting her in two.
That’s ok because there will be an overload of images bursting through your computer screen…a lot of video footage and interviews too. Still. Not the same. BUT it would still be nice to watch a show live even if it’s in your living room while you’re decked out in your finest garb and highest pumps with a glass of wine and a few friends. Did I just inspire a viewing party?
Yes. Yes, I did.
And you can make that happen because Fiji Water is sponsoring Sir Christian Siriano and he will be showing his new line at Lincoln Center on Thursday February 10th at 7pm but he’ll also be showing it online!
The show will stream live at www.fijiwater.com/christiansiriano. So bookmark that link and set a reminder to your iPhone or Blackberry…or whatever fancy device you are courting. Tell a few friends and have a viewing shindig. Sounds awesome.
Who cares…well on February 15th, post v-day, Kinder Aggugini is releasing his Macy’s line, Impulse.
Exactly. Apparently H&M’s collaboration with Lanvin has rubbed off on the department store level and Macy’s plans to release a series of designers including Matthew Williamson and Karl lagerfeld. But first comes London-based designer Kinder Aggugini. Pieces will run from about $40 to $140 with specialty pieces up to $300.
Some other Aggugini work for your pleasure
Check him out February 15th at Macy’s and send us some of your best fitting room shots or even your favorite purchases. We could use a good Bazaar Eye post, it’s been a while.
For the Neo-Victorian and Avant-Garde at heart, these rustic and ornate pieces from Harem Royal are a perfect match. Twisted metal, fur and leather are incorporated in most of the collection, and will definitely add drama to anyones appearance. Enjoy!
While roaming the net/blogs for new and interesting things to share, I came across the lovely blog of Ms. Zana Bayne. Jaws dropped and eyes widened upon the site of her amazing blog (Garbage Dress), style and hardcore creations. Check out these S&M- esque pieces, the AMAZING blog, and enjoy!
With an inlfux of a beautiful light spring accessories debuting this spring, let us not neglect the spickes and gun metal chains. Fallon debuts their spring and resort 2011 collections of chunky contemporary peices with an edgy flare, and the help of Jana Knauerova styled by Sharif Hamza. Enjoy
